Maximizing Office Productivity with Effective Sound Masking: Why Loudspeaker Coverage Matters
In bustling modern offices, managing the distractions caused by ambient noise is crucial for maintaining staff productivity, privacy, and comfort. The role of sound masking in this context cannot be understated, and proper coverage is critical.

The negative effects of inadequate sound masking coverage

A study by the Acoustical Society of America found that inadequate sound masking can lead to a 15 percent decrease in productivity due to noise distractions. One of the common pitfalls in sound masking implementation is inadequate coverage resulting from too few loudspeakers (also called sound masking emitters). This leads to inconsistent levels of ambient noise across different office areas, which can be distracting and counterproductive. A well-designed sound masking system should employ the right number of emitters to ensure uniform coverage, thus enhancing speech privacy and reducing noticeable variations in noise levels.

The cost of compromise

In bid situations, facility owners or contractors might request fewer loudspeakers to cut costs. However, this compromise significantly impacts the system’s effectiveness. A survey by the National Institute of Building Sciences indicates that retrofitting sound masking systems due to initial under-specification can increase costs by up to 25 percent. Reduced loudspeaker numbers lead to spotty sound masking uniformity, which in turn affects speech privacy in poorly covered areas. This issue often results in system integrators being called back for adjustments, with the likely solution being the addition of more loudspeakers or a reduction in overall speech privacy.
Biamp Launch – One-Touch Audio Optimization Certified for Microsoft Teams
Subpar audio performance often threatens the effectiveness of virtual collaboration. The villain? A cacophony of acoustic variables and inadequate room solutions that leave companies struggling to achieve consistent audio quality. Fortunately, Biamp Launch—certified for Microsoft Teams—is a powerful ally, ready to combat these challenges.

The advanced processing intelligence in Biamp Launch brings numerous advantages to conferencing spaces of all types and sizes. The technology utilizes the room’s peripheral devices to measure and tune the space, analyzing the unique acoustical environment and adapting it to perform to the audio standards set forth by Microsoft Teams Rooms specifications. By measuring key audio parameters like room reverberation, room noise, and speaker tunings, Launch optimizes audio performance with unprecedented precision.

And we’ve met the increasing demand by integrating Launch in product families beyond TesiraFORTÉ X DSPs, including Parlé conferencing bars and Devio conference room hubs.
